Drive sensibly Ц save fuel

Observe the following tips to save fuel:

  • The tires should always be inflated to the recommended tire pressure.
  • Remove unnecessary loads.
  • Remove roof racks when they are not needed.
  • Warm up the engine at low engine speeds.
  • Avoid frequent acceleration or braking.
  • Have all maintenance work carried out as indicated by the service intervals in the Service Booklet or by the service interval display.

Fuel consumption also increases when driving in cold weather, in stop-and-go traffic and in mountainous terrain.
